Like most Pokemon trainers, Priam began his journey at a young age, leaving his home town of Viridian City to realise his dreams. During his travels, he developed an interest in Bug-type Pokémon. He admired their variety, their uniqueness. In particular he was awed by their movements: flying, crawling, fighting, all as one. Many individuals participating in a single, vast swarm, each Pokémon affecting those around it as they attack in unison. Priam came to believe that the flap of a Beautifly’s wings on one side of the field can turn the tide on the other.
Using his team of Bug types, trained for high speed and all-out attacking, he eventually ascended the ranks to become a Gym Leader. Only those who can endure Priam’s insects are presented with the Swarm Badge for theirefforts.
Hailing from his lab in a remote corner of the Orre region, Professor Fern is a rather eccentric soul. While he is one of the premier Pokémon researchers in the region, he has the attention span of a Skitty and has been known to change projects mid-experiment. Upon hearing of a new Pokémon League opening in the city of Melbourne, he bundled up the electric-type Pokémon he was currently researching and set off to see what new discoveries were to be found, pausing only to put his coat on the right way around. Withstand Fern’s electrifying blasts to claim the Epiphany Badge!
